Josh Kenyon has been scared straight. With the federal pen now five years behind him, the former chief of staff for Fulton County Commission Chairman Mitch Skandalakis is helping the man who put him in jail teach corporate ethics.
Kenyon lost his job, his wife, his family and his law license after serving six months for taking $14,000 in bribes from a contractor. He was released in 2004.
Today, he spends his time at a legal recruiting firm and doing seminars with former FBI Agent Oliver Halle, who helped lead the Fulton bribery investigation. Halle’s training program is called “Taking the Harder Right,” which is also the name of the book he wrote in which Kenyon is one of three featured felons who wrote a first-person account of their fall from grace.
